Default Spacer quick question

So on the weekend i was about to go and install my spacers onto the car.
Jacked up the rear and went to put the spacer on.
I then saw that the existing wheel studs poked through the spacer about 1.5cm or so out through the holes in the spacer.
From then i just gave up thinking that the wheel wouldn't mount flat.
Do i have to shave these studs off? Or is there space at the back of the wheel to accommodate for the existing wheel stud!
Cheers

Most wheels have pockets on the back of the hub mounting surface between each hole that will accept a little protrusion of the OEM studs. Measure the pockets and see if they are at least 1.5cm, if so try mounting the wheels. Remember to torque everything properly. If they lay flat then you should be all set. Maybe pull them back off to see if the studs put marks in the back of the wheel if your measurements are close to the limit.

This is the long version of ISFPOWER's answer.

if you want to play it safe get ichiba spacers, as for H&R you may want to call them up to see if the is350 would work just to play it safe, I would go with H&R spacers I've used them before I like the quality. But if you want crazy wheel spacer 20+ I would go with ichiba
